Some Clearing Expected Ahead of Massive Storm

It turns out that Ma Nature does NOT have that great a sense of humor. Sure she sent a snow storm to the Global Warming Summit a few years back, which made it much more difficult for the planet saviors to land their private jets. Imagine the problems with Limos and Tire Chains? Those poor billionaires!

I received an email from a person that the ski resorts would soon be suing the oil companies for lack of snow. I simply replied back that therapy must not be working, perhaps medication would be more effective for his condition.

Mt. Rose has received over 200 inches of snow in the last 2 weeks and it is still snowing! That is how nature works. In the span of a few weeks we can catch up to our averages. Remember there is no normal when it comes to weather or even climate.

Having said all of that, we are seeing an end to this latest storm cycle approaching: Here is the forecast for late Thursday. 

We believe the snows will stop by Wednesday morning as this ridge creeps east and provides a blocking force. Notice the actual storm down in Mexico. Maybe Ma Nature does have a sense of humor, that is not supposed to happen in a La Nina year!

The coming weekend looks nice, but then the cycle starts up again on the 3rd of January:

This is the time of year when our storms are the strongest and this is a massive storm that will stick around for several days at least, here is a look at the forecast for the 6th of January:

Again, Ma Nature saying, "Your turn SoCal!"

Now we are still a ways out, but right now it looks like another 5-8 feet of snow for the Carson Range:

Conditions should be perfect all over Tahoe, so get out and enjoy it! For the latest on Mt. Rose operations and back country conditions please see my friend Sven over at Unofficial Rose.

Needless to say, if you are not a back country expert, probably stay out as conditions are extreme!
